Open day at Chichester day centre

A DAY centre in Chichester will open its doors to the public on Tuesday, May 22.

Judith Adams, at 58a, St Pancras, offers a specialist day service funded by West Sussex County Council - and carers and residents can see what’s on offer for themselves this week.

Head along between 10am and 6pm to see the range of services on offer, including activities, personal care, advice and information.

The centre provides services for people with longer-term and complex needs who meet the county Council’s eligibility criteria including a specialist service for people with dementia. In addition it offers support and information to their carers.

Judith Adams - one of eight specialist day centres that were developed by the local authority after its decision to move away from a one-size-fits-all day care service - also welcomes local people keen to volunteer at the centre.

“We have worked very hard to develop the service at Judith Adams for local people to access. We want to support customers to help them find a level of independence despite their many complex needs,” said Peter Catchpole, cabinet member for health and adults’ services.
